It’s like drinking inside a farmer’s larder. At this outpost of the farm-to-table eatery, you’ll find a cozy bar lined with colorful benches and jars of squash, tomatoes, and other garden yields. The emphasis on seasonal and local extends to drinks, and fresh-pressed juices, infused liquors, and house-made sodas inform an extensive list of refreshing cocktails (though no-frills booze-lovers can find martinis and other potent pours). Top-notch bar snacks such as deviled eggs and soy-glazed wings sprinkled with ginger and scallions ensure that you won’t drink on an empty stomach. Insider tip: Head bartender Jaclyn Beasley plays with off-menu specials—a Vieux CarrĂ© among them—for those in the know. Open daily.
